The high-stakes world of middle-school spelling competitions takes center stage in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. This musical comedy follows six overachieving would-be wordsmiths and their neurotic parents. The hilariously catchy songs capture teenage troubles at their worst from "Woe Is Me" to "My Unfortunate Erection (Chip's Lament)." And the contest teaches the valuable lesson that winning isn't the only definition of success. With music and lyrics by William Finn and a book by Rachel Sheinkin, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee was nominated for Best Musical and five other Tony Awards in its original run, winning for Best Book.

My family enjoyed the performance. My 7 old daughter grinned ear to ear the entire time, and even my 5 year son giggled out loud a few times. My only quibble is with Ms. Swamp. She was a little too sexy for my taste. OK, the actor is a beautiful young woman, but did she really need to be dressed in full dominatrix regalia? Seems like making her scarier would have been a better creative choice given the source material and the audience. At any rate, I appreciate the production company's efforts and look forward to attending future performances.
